Nadzua is a married woman with seven school-going children. Her husband is a businessman who contributes to the provision of the family's basic needs. She owns a house with neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food for her family and school fees for her children.
Nadzua has operated a charcoal selling business for the past four years. Her potential clients are her neighbors and passers-by. She faces a major challenge in harassment from the local authority because of the tree cutting and burning ban. She dreams of starting a cereals selling business.
With the 30,000 KES, Nadzua wants to purchase more stocks of charcoal for resale. She decided to join Yehu Microfinance because it helps small-scale business operators through loan giving.
